Joelle Asaro Berman 

Joelle believes deeply in the power of connecting to our identities, our visions, and our communities. She's worked in the nonprofit space for more than 10 years, leading communications, marketing, and strategy efforts at multiple organizations. She currently serves as the program director for Amplifier, an exciting new program of the Natan Fund that helps people create giving circles inspired by Jewish values -- groups who pool their charitable donations and decide together how to give them away. In addition to building communities around giving, Joelle also helps bring people together around food through her community-supported agriculture project in Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bridge CSA, and is known to start infectious dance parties, which is, incidentally, another great tool in community building.
